hi everyone, I'm beside myself with worry and hope that someone can help. I had my 20 week scan yesterday and everything appeared normal. They checked the baby's brain and they said the Cisterna Magna was measuring as normal (7mm) apparently it has to be under 10mm but they said it extended slightly and I have to go back for another scan next week. Does anyone know what this means and what the cisterna magna is and does? Many thanks!

the CM is afluid filled sac within the brain. when enlarged but no other markers there is most often no problem. (got this info from a friend doc who was around for tea!)

sorry for bad typing - trying to feed and type simultaniously.
